King started to missouria the twenty fifth of augest . I haven't heard from him since he left read river which is about three
hundred miles. he was well and giting alone very well. James Stirling was with him they hay gon back to receive their mites
for their land.

of our children has bin sick. I was confined to bead abut foor weaks. the children had the chills three months. they don't
hay the chills near as much as in Missouria. this country is pleasanter climat than missouria but I had rather liv their than
we can't raise anything their that we wanted to eat. hear is no place for gardening. the corn grows very well, wheat
does tolerabel well. there is not meany that sows it-- is a great place for cotin. William McFarland can pick his hundred
pounds a day and our oldest picks his eighty a day. they don't giv as much this year for picking as they did last year. the
price is foar bits this year. they are picking for Chamberlain.
we haven't bought no land yet. we raised no crop this
year. Mr King worked at his trade. he thought he could make more if he worked in the shop than to higher his corn geathered.
it has to be geathered so soon the geanerly greater in augest. hands has from ten to twenty dollars a month. Mr conaway talks
of moving back to Areansaw this winter. he is not contented no whar. onley at a grog shot-- he loves his dram yet.

Sarah send her love too you and famly. tell Hariet and John Tate that William has got to reading and when
he gits to writing he will wright to them and tell them to wright to him. his grandmother thinks more of Will than won of
her own children. at least she makes more of him than she evear did of won of hern. she is at Johns at this time. she would
like to se you and famley she told me to giv her love to you and famly.
George, wright as soon as you receive this and
tell rebecca that she had beater come to texas for the woman has nothing to do but to tick and lice the children and pick
read heads out of the meal and mind the screw flies of ov the children when they ar asleep. you must not think strang of mi
bad wrighting for I had to mend my penn with a case knife. when you wright direct your leater to weber perarie. I don't know
wher we will live next somer. I reckon you had heard of your brothers death and his sons death. your brother lived four days
after he was taken sick; John lived for weakes after he was tanken.
I must come to a close for the son is nearly down.
